images of dictator kim jong un studying a series of charts allegedly containing plans for a strike on the u.s. mainland. elizabeth pran is live. are we hearing from the white house on this? >> we are. white house announcing a legally coast rhetoric and the threats are more of a familiar pattern. new reports of fighter jets are arriving in south korea for joint exercises, latest demonstration meant to deter from pyongyang. they conducted annual air power drills that did include b-2 stealth bombers. chairman spoke about the country's bullying language this morning. >> i wouldn't be that concerned about them in the mainland u.s. right now or even in the u.s. territory. i think the real threat is to what north korea might be boxing itself into. >> reporter: he went on to say there is no purpose to have direct talks with the leader and staff comparing them to an organized crime family running the territory. >> heather: so kim jong un he has listed a number of other threats. what else is he demanding? >> reporter: the young leader is threatening to close one of the biggest sources of emp
been. it's a journalist's dream to be able to meet kim jong-un face-to-face. many diplomats would fight for that chance as well. and here dennis rodman is the first american ever to meet face-to-face with him. what do you make of it? >> i don't. i just don't. i'm so thoroughly embarrassed for us, so thoroughly embarrassed for north korea, so thoroughly embarrassed about this conversation. because it's not really talking about anything serious. this is like a publicity stunt. i grew up in detroit. i loved dennis rodman the basketball player. and i think anyone who played with him would say he's one of the best basketball players they played with. he's in the hall of fame. but structuring a sunday morning around his trip to north korea in conjunction with international politics? it's absolutely ridiculous. >> anna, what do you think the point was of this trips, besides shooting an hbo documentary. >> i think it was pointless. i think there was no point. i'm absolutely with lz on this one. it's all i can do to keep my eyes from rolling to the back of my head to be discussing this. frankly,
of kim jong un, the north korean leader, peering through field glasses and threatening to annihilate a small south korean island this is that island. it's about ten miles from the north korean mainland. in fact, kim was standing just over there on that small island when he made those threats. this place is home to 5,000 civilians. and a lot of soldiers. now, you would have thought that they would have got used to threats from the north. but even here, they've been alarmed by the frequency and the intensity of the threats that have come from pyongyang. now, the latest of course, was kim saying he was readying north korean missiles to attack u.s. bases. and today there was a mass rally in the center of pyongyang, screaming death to imperialists. and of course, supporting kim jong un. analysts believe an attack on u.s. bases is not that likely. that north korea simply doesn't have the capability. more likely is some sort of limited clash here in the west sea, that's happened before. the people on this island are only too aware of that. andr andrea? >> ian williams thanks to you on the f
, that the father, the grandfather of kim jong-un has exceeded now the direct threats against the united states, the threats of nuclear war on the peninsula, the threats of attacking hawaii, of attacking guam, of attacking the mainland united states with nuclear weapons. let's make clear. he doesn't have the capability to do that. but he is taking it to a different level. and there's a lot of people that are looking on and they're trying to calm the situation down. we heard today from south korea's defense ministry spokes man. listen -- >> translator: north korea's continuing threats against south korea such as saying it is entering a state of war, are never acceptable since it is harming peace and stability on the korean peninsula. the recent military exercises such as key resolve and bold eagle and the u.s. strategic bombers' deployment on the peninsula were defensive in nature against north korea's possible provocation. >> reporter: now, the real threat according to some veteran north korea watchers like dr. ham park of the university of georgia, is that the young north korean leader is back

community. >> suarez: the sanctions aim to make it more difficult for north korea's leader, kim jong-un, to finance his nuclear and missile programs. in december, the north successfully fired a long-range rocket, saying it was designed to orbit a satellite. and last month, north koreans cheered scientists who carried out the country's third nuclear test. that event directly provoked today's u.n. action. north korea's closest ally, china, even helped draft the sanctions. >> we want to see full implementation of the resolution. the top priority now is to defuse the tension, bring down the heat. ( applause ) >> suarez: instead, the sounds and images from pyongyang today were all about defiance. civilians and members of the military staged a mass rally and state television carried a direct threat against the u.s. >> ( translated ): since the united states is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to preemptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest. >> suarez: north korea also threatened this week to nullify
what our supreme commander kim jong-un wants. no matter what anyone says victory is ours. >> reporter: this is propaganda but very patriotic statements coming out of pyongyang. i think the international community's obviously concerned, will this mean all-out war. >>> i think it's prepare tearma say that. having been in south korea recently, this will raise tensions even more so. >> anna, china, which is a key north korean ally, is supporting these sanctions against north korea. that's not necessarily what you expect, right? >> reporter: no, exactly. china has been a big supporter. if the only supporter really of north korea, the biggest treading partner, providing fuel and food and for china to come out and bank the sanctions from the missile test in december and on to the nuclear test last month to come out and say, yes, north korea needs to be punished, this is a big move because, in the past, china has certainly had some influence over what north korea does. you'd have to assume, considering that north korea continues to go against the international community, that china's influenc
north korea last week. he quoted kim jong-un as saying "i don't want to do war" and asking that president obama "call him." white house officials denounced the rodman visit as nothing more than a publicity stunt. for more on the sanctions and north korea's response, i'm joined by victor cha, a former national security council official, now a senior advisor at the center for strategic and international studies. and joseph detrani, formerly senior advisor and north korea mission manager in the office of director of national intelligence. he's now president of the intelligence and national security alliance. mr. cha, what did the security council vote to do in these latest sanctions. >> well, this latest round of sanctions, ray, came at three things. first is interdicting of cargo expected to be of north korean origin that carry missile parts or things of that nature. a blacklist on the import of certain items people can use for their weapons programs as well as individuals and the third element has to do with financial sanctions. trying to block -- u.n. member states blocking

: i remember when kim the younger, kim jong-un, became the new leader. we didn't even have a picture that was less than five years old. but more importantly, who is pulling his strings? do we know? >> the danger is that the hardline elements of the north korean military is -- he has an uncle that is not very pro engagement, pro u.s. the danger is that they're pulling his strengths and he is allowing them to do that. what i do think is happening is kim jong-un and his people think he has to strengthen himself because he is so young and inexperienced with his own people. so, maybe a lot of this bluster is to show his own people he is in charge, that the missile launch was successful. the one they did a couple of months ago. but it's amazing what we don't know about this guy, and this is why i think it's important that somehow down the line we engage him with diplomacy, but backed up with a few sticks. like the chinese could help more than they're helpings. >> shepard: the south koreans ended the crease fire that put the war on hold. how concerned are the south koreans about this guy? >
